To promote the release of tickets to the public, the second Paralympic Day was held Sunday at Place de la République in Paris in the presence of France President Emmanuel Macron. The event was organized jointly by the Paris 2024 Organizing Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Ministry of Sport, the French Paralympic and Sports Committee and the city of Paris.
The event brought together nearly 100 athletes and tens of thousands of spectators.
“The mixture of sporting performances, entertainment, partner activations and announcements regarding the French team was highly engaging,” said Andrew Parsons, president of the International Paralympic Committee. “To see so many people attending left me full of confidence that interest in buying Paralympic tickets will be extremely high. We are on course for truly outstanding Paris 2024 Paralympic Games.”
